Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Critics Consensus

Kingsman: The Golden Circle offers more of everything that made its predecessor so much fun, but lacks the original's wild creative spark.

What a mess it is.

Sep 25, 2017 | Full Review…

The movie is too long, too violent, too silly-too everything. Yet for those who enjoyed the original Kingsman, it is a more than adequate second act. To put it another way: First time satire, second time farce.

Sep 23, 2017 | Full Review…

[Matthew] Vaughn hasn't only run out of things to say but people to hate, and without that underlying aggression, the movie feels like it's just going through the motions. Better luck next time, bruv.

While the action rarely flags, the running time is needlessly grandiose and the commercial calculation that underpins everything puts limits on [Matthew] Vaughn's bent for transgression.

Sep 22, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

If the first played like a simultaneous homage to and parody of Sean Connery's Bond, the second feels like a straight riff on the Roger Moore era: bloated, self-conscious, and smug, with only the occasional flash of nasty wit to put the edge on.

Sep 22, 2017 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

If the first Kingsman was a work of lol-nothing-matters provocation with a real mean streak, the second is a work of lol-nothing-matters laziness...

Audience Reviews for Kingsman: The Golden Circle


While the sequel to the surprise hit offers the same amount of crazy fights and huge action sequences, the result doesn't feel as fresh and original. The humor doesn't quite work as well, either. No one really waited for An Orchestral version of "Country roads" or Elton Johns mighty random Cameo either. Everything is just a little bit over the top, and not the good way like in Part 1. That's fairly entertaining and sometimes fun but also pretty damn stupid, sadly.

In the olden days of spy movies, after thrilling through one audacious bit of stuntwork, one had to wait two whole years or more for the next new spy movie to be released to see how the movies would try to outdo the last stunt. No more. In this outing Matthew Vaughan goes surgical and all with the "you only have to wait a few minutes" school of thinking. And so there is one set piece, after another, after another, each bigger and more audacious than the last. Gone as well is the "let's do a story" idea. In its place is the "let's just throw everything at the screen to see what sticks". Which is to say, in an over-the-top appeal to American audiences, or maybe an American job, nobody gives a good damn what's going on here.

Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Golden Circle unleashes the blue rash. Running long at 20 minutes past 2 hours, Kingsman: The Golden Circle tells an amusing tale, but fills itself with a bit more nonsense than needed. With that said, the story houses enough entertainment value. The violence is brutal, although the blood is held in check. There is enough action to go around, backed with stylized choreography and camerawork. Taron Egerton puts his foot through the door and takes the lead, something he couldn't do in the previous picture. Mark Strong and Julianne Moore take up a bunch of minutes with plenty of familiar faces showing up. Kingsman: The Golden Circle has the action, the adventure, and the comedy; everything a film of this caliber needs.

Mush up of the first....but with less of the spark. An unnecessary sequel, vaguely amusing in places!
